Okay so what do you want first?

The knitting, the spinning, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, our anniversary trip, my big announcement or all of the above? . . . . we’ll start with the knitting.

I knit alot of small projects over the whole holiday season. Several were gifted without pictures taken first so you may get to see them in the future or maybe not. The ones I do have pics of I’m planning on sharing over the course of several posts. Here’s one I’m very proud of, my first stranded colorwork project.

This is Teddy’s winter hat and oh my gosh the lining makes it warm! I had a blast knitting this and loved that it worked up in only one day.

I also knit some very colorful Celebration Mitts for Trinity. I spun up some brightly dyed Shetland wool from my favorite fiber pusher and navajo-plied it into a round, fat & squishy aran weight. They are tightly knit and wind-proof.

Tomorrow I’ll show you the beret I knit to match these, and the one I knit for myself.

Spinning pics will be posted tomorrow too. You can probably gather from my long absence that I’ve been busy. That would be the truth. Between school activities, cub scouts and wedding planning I need a break. I’ve got so much going on it’s almost impossible to keep it all straight in my head. But I do remember the news I just have to tell you today.

I’m going back to school! . . . . and I love school. Starting in the fall with only 2 classes I’ll be working my way up slowly till I’m carrying a full load. However as great as this is, it’s not the going back to college that is exciting. It’s my major that makes my heart race. I’ll be studying Fashion Design, Production & Marketing! I’m finally following the dreams I had when I graduated from high school. So yeah, that’s my big announcement. And Amanda, there’s much more to come where that came from. 😉

You guys sure know how to make a girl blush. Thanks for the huge response. I guess I needn’t have feared. Okay I’d write you a full progress report right now but all my pictures are on my other computer. However let me say that I have a lot to tell you my friends. Till tomorrow, knit with all your heart.





Testing, Testing….
